Autism Support Louth in conjunction with Irish Autism Action are very pleased to facilitate a number of workshops for siblings of children with autism in July.

Dates are Saturday 7th and Saturday 21st July from 11.00 am to 12.00 pm.  The workshops will be held in the Drogheda ABACAS School premises.   The age range of the siblings is 6 to 12/13. Years.  ( primary school children).  If there is enough interest we could run a separate workshop for the older siblings.   There is a charge of €5 per child.

The workshops will be facilitated by Olive Whelan  

Expressive Arts Therapist and Licenced Sibshop Programme of Events

Sibshops are best described as opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with special health and developmental needs to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context.  Sibshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of children with special needs.  Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many somewhere in between.
